It’s not everyday that someone special in your life turns 80. Well, this past weekend, my sweet daddy did just that. And we hosted a surprise breakfast/luncheon for him at church, where he was surrounded by family and friends who adore him and a place he feels like is his second home. So being all “church dress up” and a family birthday, this paisley dress fit the bill.
From Free People, it’s simple, stylish, conservative, but not stiff. I love the detail of the bell sleeves that compliment the a-line tunic style of the dress. Paisley has never been my thing, but for some reason, it almost looked like a brocade fabric. And the mock turtleneck with the hair in a bun made it all pop even more. Perfect for this special man’s birthday.
